Some people may prefer a DIY rocket stove because with this stove you have to pick up your pot or pan to fully reload your fuel supply vs the bottom feed of a rocket stove. However it only takes a few seconds and burns for 10-12 mins per “fill-up”.

Something else to think about is this small wood stove has the benefit (over the rocket stove) of not needing to remove the ash nearly as often (every couple of hours vs. once every 8 hours (assuming continuous burn) due to it’s large “storage area” for the ash under the burn chamber. This will be much clearer once you watch the video.
